    Equipment Note

The bulbul is perched on the branch of a large tree at approx. 40 ft. It flies to another branch laterally and then directly over the microphone and across the small access road to another tree approx. 40 ft. away. It then flies to another tree approx. 70 ft. away before flying off. At approx. 2:11, the pigeon can be heard making a "honking" type vocalization. It is unseen throughout the recording

Third cut, the bird defecates and the dropping can be heard falling on the leaf litter. The bird moves several times in the same area and vocalizes throughout the recording. The pigeons can be heard in the background throughout the recording
